Christmas with the family, away from home in a hotel in a foreign country does not sound like everyone's dream. The Oyster Box made ours outstanding. There is no shortage of things for the family (especially the kids) to do (beach, pool, cinema, town a short walk away). The food was out of this world and we all ate way too much! Christmas Day lunch was a special treat and will be a talking point for many years to come.
Everything was fantastic - the service, the friendly staff, the location. If you are going to South Africa I highly recommend a stay here.
